"I direct a large interdisciplinary public health research team at Arizona State University. We are dedicated to promoting equity by coproducing research with nonacademic collaborations. One way that we do this is by putting increased focus on stakeholder and engagement outputs such as lay publications, blogs, and websites. Bright Island Communications has been invaluable to our team over the past two years with copy editing, writing, and storytelling. Most recently, Jen helped us design a digital storytelling website to accompany a recent scientific manuscript to increase the accessibility of our findings. She is thoughtful, creative, professional, and a joy to work with."

"Jen did an amazing job on our literature review article. She engaged deeply with the source material we provided her. She listened carefully to our needs and adjusted her initial draft to bring it closer in line with our organizations position. Not only did she do all this, but she did it quickly and thoroughly. I highly recommend Bright Island Communications to anyone looking to share academic information with a more general audience."

"Working with Jen has been a delightful and productive experience. Her articles not only showcase her exceptional research skills but also her ability to distill complex information into easily digestible content. Jen is flexible when it comes to topic selection; she is more than willing to take direction, yet brings her own ideas to the table as well. Beyond her professional competence, Jen’s friendly demeanor and communication skills made the work pleasant and collaboration seamless. She is an exceptional writer.
